Children today experience most of their academic training indoors and spend their outdoor playtime on paved surfaces with chain-link fences. This comprehensively illustrated guide shows proven methods for converting barren school grounds into learning and play spaces that are beautiful, vibrant, and alive. Case studies from North America, Scandinavia, and Great Britain demonstrate natural outdoor teaching environments that support hands-on learning in science, math, language, and art, in ways that nurture healthy imagination and socialization. With this book, schools, teachers, parents, and students will be able to envision exciting ecological learning environments and learn how to make them a reality.
